  • Suns' Saben Lee: Impactful in rare appearance

    Lee put up four points (1-2 FG, 2-2 FT), two assists and one rebound across eight minutes during Thursday's 110-105 win over Houston.

    In just his fifth appearance in February, the two-way guard was able to make the most of his limited minutes. Due to injuries to both Bradley Beal (hamstring) and Eric Gordon (groin), Lee has seen an increased role averaging 5.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 9.6 minutes per game. With Beal and Gordon seemingly returning to the rotation soon, expect a decrease in Lee's minutes.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Rare appearance in victory

    Lee totaled nine points (2-2 FG, 5-5 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 129-113 win over the Rockets.

    Lee saw action for just the second time in the past eight games, finishing with nine points in 12 minutes. Although he does have a somewhat fantasy-friendly game, Lee rarely sees enough playing time to be considered a viable fantasy asset, even in deeper formats. Barring injuries to several other players, Lee seems destined to remain on the waiver wire for the remainder of the season.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Lives at the charity stripe

    Lee recorded 17 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 8-8 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 15 minutes during Thursday's 123-100 preseason win over the Lakers.

    Lee led Phoenix's bench in scoring despite playing just 15 minutes. His team-high eight free throws were a large factor in his scoring outburst. Lee is expected to play a depth role for the Suns' backcourt during the regular season.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Coming off bench

    Lee will move to the bench for Thursday's preseason game against the Blazers.

    Devin Booker is getting the nod at point guard after resting Tuesday. Lee has shot the ball poorly in preseason so far, but he's averaging 11.0 points and 6.5 assists through two games.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Fills in with nine assists

    Lee tallied 11 points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine assists and two rebounds across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 115-107 preseason loss to the Nuggets.

    Bradley Beal and Devin Booker took a seat Tuesday, giving Lee a chance to show his stuff as the team's floor manager. Lee will have to contend with newcomers Eric Gordon and Grayson Allen for minutes in the second unit, and while a spot on the team is likely, a trip to the G League may be a possibility based on the team's backcourt depth.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Draws start Tuesday

    Lee is starting Tuesday's preseason game against the Nuggets, Duane Rankin of Arizona Central reports.

    Bradley Beal, Devin Booker and Kevin Durant are all getting a planned night of rest. Lee needs a big performance Tuesday after struggling in Sunday's preseason opener, when he scored 11 points on 2-of-12 shooting from the field.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Back with Phoenix

    Lee signed a two-way deal with the Suns on Thursday, Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Lee was waived by the 76ers last November, but he latched on with the Suns via a 10-day contract in January. After landing another 10-day deal, he officially signed a two-way contract in February. Lee appeared in 23 contests for Phoenix in 2022-23 and averaged 6.3 points, 2.8 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 15.7 minutes per game, including a 25-point, 10-assist performance during the regular-season finale.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Not starting Sunday

    Lee isn't starting Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round against the Clippers on Sunday.

    Lee started the Suns' regular-season finale with the team resting several contributors. However, as a two-way player, he won't be able to suit up to begin the postseason.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Scores season-high 25 points

    Lee ended Sunday's 119-114 loss to the Clippers with 25 points (8-21 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-8 FT), three rebounds, nine assists and two steals over 44 minutes.

    Lee stepped up Sunday, playing as the starting point guard with the Suns electing to rest basically their entire starting five. After putting together a few decent performances in January, Lee has fallen off the radar in recent times. Outside of potential blowouts, Lee figures to remain fixed to the bench most nights as we enter the postseason.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Will start Sunday

    Lee will start Sunday's game against the Clippers, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports.

    With the Suns locked into the fourth seed and resting all their starters, Lee slides into the first five and will be joined by Josh Okogie, Jock Landale, Landry Shamet and Ish Wainright. Last time out, Lee posted nine points, four rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Struggles from field

    Lee logged nine points (4-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Friday's 121-107 loss to the Lakers.

    Lee cracked the rotation and reached double-digit minutes for the first time since the February 2 win against the Pacers. The increased playing time can be attributed to the Suns resting four of their starters including Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton. Even with the additional playing time, Lee struggled from the field and failed to score in double digits.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Provides modest stats as backup

    Lee closed with four points (0-1 FG, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, five assists and two steals in 15 minutes during Saturday's 116-100 win over the Pistons.

    Like Chris Paul, Lee struggled to score from the point guard position in Saturday's win, but he still managed to provide a bit of value in steals and assists. With no Duane Washington in Phoenix now, perhaps Lee can carve out a larger backup role in the rotation until Cameron Payne (foot) returns. Until then, he should be considered in only very deep formats.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Returns to Phoenix on two-way deal

    The Suns signed Lee to a two-way contract Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Lee's second 10-day contract with Phoenix recently expired, making him a free agent, but the 2020 second-round pick will return to the Suns' organization via a two-way deal. Across 10 appearances with Phoenix, Lee has averaged 7.0 points, 3.3 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 17.1 minutes per game. In a corresponding move, the Suns waived Duane Washington.

  • Saben Lee: Contract expires

    Lee's second 10-day contract with the Suns expired Tuesday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Because he's now completed two 10-day deals with Phoenix, Lee would need to be signed to the 15-man roster or to one of the team's two two-way slots in order to be eligible to play for the Suns moving forward. The third-year point guard has appeared in each of Phoenix's past 10 games while averaging 7.0 points, 3.3 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 0.6 three-pointers in 17.1 minutes per contest, but his playing time has dropped off of late with Chris Paul having returned to full health. Even so, Phoenix could stand to benefit from keeping Lee on hand as backcourt depth, given that Cameron Payne (foot) and Landry Shamet (foot) are out indefinitely along with the fact that Devin Booker (groin) is unlikely to return until at least late in the week.

  • Suns' Saben Lee: Expected to sign another 10-day

    Lee is expected to sign a second 10-day contract with the Suns, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

    Lee's initial 10-day contract expires Saturday, but he's expected to stick around the organization for at least another week and a half. The 2020 second-round pick has appeared in four straight games for the Suns and averaged 11.3 points, 3.8 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 21.3 minutes during that stretch, including a 15-point, six-assist performance during Thursday's win over Brooklyn.
